Fabian is located at 132.27, -797.48, 6.87 in East Freeport inside the Grub 'n Grog Tavern.

You say, 'Hail, Fabian'

Fabian says, 'Greetings, merry gentlefolk! If you enjoy the music, please feel free to cross my palm with gold.'

Give Fabian 2gp and he will say:

Rat spittle! Busted another string! You seem like a good music loving citizen, could you please run to the Wind Spirit's Song and grab me a fresh set of lute strings?

Note: You can stop here if your only goal is faction. The rest of the quest is for level 30+.
Each turn-in gives 1 Faction with League of Antonican Bards (tested on P99 Blue 2018-07-13). The amounts are likely the same for the other factions.

Head to Wind Spirits Song, the Bard guild in South Qeynos

You say, 'Hail, Sansa Nusk'

Sansa Nusk says 'Hello.. Welcome to the Wind Spirit's Song. I'm Sansa, and I help out the local bards here.'

You say, 'Who is Fabian?'

Sansa Nusk says 'Ahh - jolly Fabian. He is one of our best customers! That is, of course, due to the fact that he has the heaviest fingers of any bard I know. Anyhow, down to business. I assume he sent you for a new set of strings. Unfortunately, I have not been able to procure any of the special - uhh - things needed to make his strings lately.'

You say, 'What special things?'

Sansa Nusk says 'Uhh - ummm - uhhh - Fabian does not know this, but his strings are - uh - made of - uh - troll guts.'

You say, 'Where do I get troll guts?'

Sansa Nusk says 'Well, Fabian likes the thick resonance that only troll gut strings can provide. Trouble is, trolls are scarce around these parts, thank the gods, but Fabian breaks his strings as fast as I find suppliers. Trolls sometimes wander the Karanas in search of food but that is so rare, to see one there. Anyhow, if you find one out in the Karanas, bring me his gut and I can make the strings to take to Fabian.'

You need a Bag of Troll Guts which drops off Zahal the Vile in North Karana. Hand them into Sansa.

Sansa Nusk says 'I am not even going to bother asking where you got that. Just take this set I already made and hurry them back to Fabian.'

You gain experience!!

Receive Lute Strings, hand them in to Fabian back in East Freeport.

Fabian says 'Many thanks, merry gentlefolk! Let me cross your palm in gratitude for your kindness.'

You gain experience!!

You receive 20 silver, 10 gold, 1 platinum from Fabian.
